The professional and practical advice that WBM provides is designed to allow operators of sites to be able to function without significant complaints and interruption. Full and thorough assessments avoid delays in the planning process and prevent operational problems that might occur due to complaints arising when a site is operational.
WBM has advised many of the major minerals companies in the UK, as well as Mineral Planning Authorities, on over six hundred surface mineral and related workings including mineral extraction and processing, cement works, concrete batching plants, asphalt coating plants, dry silo mortar plants and wharf operations – that means we have the experience to help you whatever your site.
We have contributed to over two hundred environmental impact assessments, many of them relating to surface mineral working sites. Site noise calculations and environmental impact assessment reports are backed up by competent professional evidence at public inquiries and planning appeals where necessary. In recent years we have had less involvement with planning appeals and public inquiries as our guidance on noise has resulted in fewer areas of disagreement between applicants and the authorities.
